CitrusTV is the completely student-run television studio of Syracuse University and the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Syracuse, New York. It was founded in 1970 and has around 350 student members.
The organization is not a station, network or channel and does not broadcast its own programming, except for online streaming. Instead, CitrusTV provides programming, both live and taped—primarily to its website, Time Warner Cable SportsNet and the Orange Television Network, which is the university-controlled station available in all campus buildings on channel 2.
For several years, the organization used "the oldest and largest entirely student-run television station in the nation" as its main slogan. Though this claim was disputed by Ithaca College Television in particular, CitrusTV still maintains that it is distinguished in this way because it is fully student-run and independent of the university's media college, unlike Ithaca College Television. Ithaca's organization explains that it shares equipment and resources with the college, unlike CitrusTV. Unlike Ithaca College Television, faculty and administration do not have day-to-day involvement with operations or production at CitrusTV. The slogan is no longer used.
